of what were initially peaceful protests. obviously the situation in syria has deteriorated since then. we have been extensively engaged with the international community as well as regional powers to help the opposition. we have committed to hundreds of millions of dollars of humanitarian aid to help folks both inside of syria and outside of syria. we are constantly consulting with the opposition on how they can get organized so that they're not splintered and divided in the face of the onslaught from the assad regime. we are in very close contact with countries like turkey and jordan that immediately border syria and have an impact and obviously israel, which is having already grave concerns as we do about, for example, movements of chemical weapons that might occur in such a chaotic atmosphere. and that could have an impact not just within syria, but on the region as a whole. i'm encouraged to see that the syrian opposition created an umbrella group that may have more cohesion than they had in the past. we're going to be talking to them, my envoys will be traveling to, you know, various

on the part of anybody, no international organization should listen to any arguments about going into syria or supporting the rebels in syria, in your judgment. >> in the syrian interest story -- first of all, we've got to get our intelligence correct. we don't know exactly what's happened in syria and i don't think we should fight a war on that. as to international organizations, it would be a good idea for us to join one. we are the only nation that has resisted the united nations . >> i only do this because we have a time clock here. great to see you. >> four parts. oliver stone always has an interesting take. >> unboring. >> yes, unboring. it's true. >>> instagram is kachanging the way that we see the world. we'll ask kevin systrom how his photo sharing site ended up [ libe ] le dnkrae ic oha lonn wer. eat moaue sghti ecic evs smeos n usac esi. th emesttso arow douan gw ouenelac w qteuris, lyews urxpur aayhath c dtoou 'sui aesn ard. dti romnd th iserome beusitel tstngen e am. romnd tt usit erti iru. yofe le erisomhi th y'rdog toelsagud ait the idroon d beevit dog go j. >>> there's an

with syria. that's according to the head of the nato military alliance. he he expects the turks to formally request the patriot air to surface missiles in the coming days any deployment would be for defensive purposes. turkey shares longest border with syria and former allies have recently exchanged rocket fire. meanwhile syrian rebel firefighters claim they seized a military base on 00 outskirts of capital city of damascus and group of islamist within the rebel ranks claims that it has rejected the new western-backed' session group a potential major set back in the effort to topple the syrian president bashar assad. basically i just said it's very confusing. passengers on the italian airliner survived what one of them described as 10 seconds of terror when their plane hit turbulence and plunged some 10,000 feet. airline officials say it happened over the atlantic ocean on a flight from cuba to italy. sudden drop injured 30 people or so. nothing serious but just scrapes and bruises. pilots reported the plane itself is fine. they alan landed safely at their destination in millan. what happen
, but neither do i see it as very helpful in pressing russia on issues like iran or their conduct towards syria. russian opposition level leaders, however, and russian civil society, and the russian press, what free press remains in russia today really support this legislation. and i think what this legislation intends is sort of a mutually beneficial relationship with russia based on a rule of law. based on human rights. that's the hope. it includes the sergei magnitsky legislation that came out of the foreign affairs committee of which i am an original co-sponsor, and i do think we owe a debt of gratitude to chairman ros-lehtinen for her determination to have that provision in the legislation. and i think if we reflect on the words of the russian opposition in their parliament, one said recently, this provision is very pro-russian. it helps defend us in russia from criminals. it helps defend us from criminals who kill our citizens, who steal our money, and hide it abroad. and that's the point. that's what we are trying to do with that provision. and this bill liberalizing trade while at the s

is at a wine tasting. we have we've got israel conflicts, syria, pending issues with iran. not a lot of trump with the muslim brotherhood. where are the priorities? >> you think this would be the exactly the time when you need your secretary of state engaged full force. anticipating the hearings coming up in congress and she finds herself conveniently out of touch in australia. she was the one that general petraeus resigned and took him off the stage. now hillary clinton is out. she is off the stage for now. we'll continue to drill on this but the balance of power and u.s. influence does need a secretary of state on tab. we've got two things, the continuing developments in benghazi and how we have to investigate that completely. plus to avert a disaster in the middle east. i don't see her on the job. >> iran, libya, where is the secretary of state. why isn't she testifying this week. the american people have a right to know. what they knew, when they knew it. our state department was watching libya unfold in realtime. >> benghazi is more than just a murder investigation of four fellow citizen
in syria. but you can be sure that the israeli defense forces are watching that northern border very, very closely right now. >> harris: jonathan hunt, thank you very much. in addition to rockets, israel and hamas are also battling each other on-line. the israeli defense force has consistently and constantly updated its official twitter account since this conflict began. one tweet reads, quote, we recommend that hamas operatives whether low level or senior level, show their faces above ground in days ahead. the militant wing of hamas responding with its own tweet. quote, our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are. you opened hell gates on yourselves, end quote. and all of this is going on despite twitter's policy against direct specific threats of violence. >>> you've been hearing about it. economic crisis just a few weeks away potentially if lawmakers don't do something about it. president obama meeting with congressional leaders from both political parties to try to get them back from the brink. if they can't reach a deal by new year's day, tax also go up, d
to your broader question republicans will continue to respect and follow his advice and syria is the next big issue that he is pounding away on. he was at a forum at the newseum yesterday and crying out for american leadership on syria which means more involvement and there are a lot of big issues he has a huge influence on because of his experience, respect and personal history. this issue i'm not so sure they'll follow him on but two or three have said they're putting holds on a nomination. no bell laureate economists nominated for the federal reserve who was finally withdrew his name after a year of waiting because he was not going to be -- >> consumer. >> and the consumer protection service agency, elizabeth warren's former agency so you have people all over the place, judges -- >> ambassadors. >> when lindsey graham mentioned yesterday was john boughten and that was, okay, a warning because john was not confirmed for u.n. ambassador then was a recess appointee. no way the president will nominate a secretary of state as a recess appointee. you cannot with credible lead diplomacy over
remember the mortar shells coming from syria, we heard for the third time in just a week, there has been something coming in from syria into israel, a soldier from the israeli military was injured by shrapnel coming in from syria today. back to you. >> brian: thanks so much. >> steve: be careful. >> gretchen: now the other stories making headlines. it's official. jon corzine thanked mf global. his bad management decisions led to the firm's bankruptcy and loss of $1.6 billion in customers' money. specifically the report says that he created an atmosphere where no one could challenge his decisions. corzine used to be the democratic governor of new jersey. >> steve: meanwhile, it could have been him. this morning we're hearing from the owner of the plane that crashed into a home leaving three people dead. roger latham was supposed to be on the plane with three pilots heading to an faa safety conference. at the last minute, he decided to go hunting instead. >> horrible thing. i don't really know what to say about that. i kind of feel guilty in some sense. >> steve: he is awe live. the pilots
by jordan, egypt, lebanon, syria and iraq. but the fledgling country survived. the u.n. passed resolution 194 in december 1948 which allowed ref are geez who wished to live peacefully the right to return home at the earliest practical date. nearly 20 years later in 1967, israel pre 'em tifl struck egyptian forces after the access was blocked to the port. israel gained control over areas including the west bank and gaza strip and east jerusalem. for arabs, this was the beginning of a period of occupation by israel which remains at the center of today's conflict. now, there would be another air rob israeli war in 1973. before that, there's the formation of the plo or the palestinian liberation organization which would be defined by the likes of yasir arafat. in 1978, u.s. president jimmy carter helped to broker the peace accords between saadat of egypt and prime minister ba begin of israel which paved the way for the 1979 peace treaty between those two countries. the lalt '80s saw the formation of hamas in the west bank and gaza erasing hopes. the oslo accords signed -- establishing recogni
on this. who benefits from this is syria and spotlight . syria gets the spotlight off and iran makes the weapon program excel. >> but a lot of people are putting the iranians behind hamas on this. hamas is alienated themselves from the iranians and moved out of sir yampt hamas always would have preferred to work with sunni than shiia and now they have those people to work with and all of the arms they want coming out of libya and tunisia after the arab spring. the reliance on the iranians is much less. >> brian: they sided with the syrian rebels and hesbollah sided with the syrian government. very complicated. great analysis. >> thank you, sir. >> brian: we move on on the run down. the camera was rolling in the moment of immingpact. >> look at that. >> brian: wow. the story behind the video next. candidate obama made this promise to the nation's heroes. >> no veteran should have to wait months or years for the benefits that you earned. >> brian: but the next guest said the president has not delivered. his story will blow you away. my friend told me about a great new way to get deals.
sending missile parts to syria. we've talked about the relationship between north korea and the middle east before. this is the first we've heard of this and this happened a couple of months ago. what do you make of it, what is the involvement we need to watch. >> this is a continuation of a trend because the north koreans have been not only selling missiles but nuclear reactors. the reactor destroyed in 2007, that was a north korean reactor. iran paid for it. the united states has not been paying enough attention to north korean proliferation. jenna: there is so much to watch, gordon how do you prioritize. >> that is the real problem, the crises is come one right after the other. it will be very difficult for the administration or even a bunch of countries to be able to deal with this because there is too much happening all at once. jenna: it certainly feels that way. you give us a lot of thins to think about. it's good to have you on set. thank you. appreciate it very much. jon: a couple of icons of the american lunch box could be no more. we might be seeing the last of the twinninge
in and day in and day out, from syria, iran, libya. they would've taken some of the resources and money for the welfare of their own people, it could have turned completely different. look at the number of missiles that they managed to organize out there. this is who we are up against. we are up against an organization that doesn't recognize the right to exist. people forget that. they don't recognize the right to exist. they preach to the genocide of jews. they are enemies to anyone who says, hey, what would happen? are not people we can talk to, but these guys are the enemy. we are targeting the military infrastructure, so at the end of the day, we will be able to sit down with reasonable people to do something. megyn: the rocket fire had been raining in israel for some time. finally, israel struck back and took out the equivalent of, they say it is like hamas's osama the modern -- osama bin laden. they say that this is like a new york or los angeles. can you speak to this? at the huge number of troops -- potentially up to 75,000 troops. what can be done? according to trace gallagher'
to worse, the brutality in this war unfolding in syria. what's the latest? >> reporter: absolutely. what you're referring to, wolf, is this cluster bomb to the east of damascus which now human rights watch having studied activist video heard from activists on the ground pretty certain cluster bombs were used. they say it looks like soviet -- they say witnesses say there was no specific rebel target in the area around there which they could have been aiming at. and of course applying pressure for the world to stop using cluster munitions specifically here of course for the syrian regime to stop hitting civilian targets, wolf. >> and the brutality is really unbelievable. about 40,000 people so far have been killed in this war over the past year and a half. who knows how many have been injured or made homeless, refugees streaming into syria, jordan, other countries in the region. is there any positive signs whatsoever that this may be coming to an end any time soon? >> reporter: well, of course there's two different sides to that. the fear with the cluster bombs as the regime get put on the
this cia unit or somebody down there was buy i buying arms to send to syria. i frankly discount them all. i see no evidence of it. somebody has to give us the answers. this is why this controversy is carried on so long because there's absolutely no clarity. we, as americans, want to know why four american diplomats were killed. >> let's specifically -- there is word that the people on the ground in benghazi, libya, cried out for help and help did not come. >> i think it's clear that the ambassador, who was murdered, did express doubts to washington about the security. there was no backup. the problem is, if there was a seven-hour gun battle for that consulate, that's not fast enough for the pentagon to react. it just isn't. i've been in those situations. you have to have the pieces in place before you can respond. i've heard the stories about laser designators and they could have called in air support. listen, to use military forces inside an independent country, a volatile one at that, takes, you know, weeks of planning in advance. somebody did drop the ball. but i just don't believe the t
erupted in 2003 to a broad degree, and that now includes syria in turmoil, really in a deep civil war, egypt having had the revolution and change of government. jordan. there was, of course, the conflict in gaza in 2008, and the daenk now if it is, it could be spread. not just to israelis and palestinians, but if you had a conflict that spread throughout the region, it could be hugely destabilizing and costly to everyone involved. >> i think the president is on the right course. it's trying to use all the allies to encourage both parties to step back from an escalation of the conflict. that's very difficult. israel has the right to defend itself against the barrage of rockets that have accelerated dramatically in recent days and no doubt will do so wanting to deter such action in the future. the problem is if this escalates that, could have devastating consequences for all concerned, so it's a tension there trying to accomplish one objective without having it reverse and cause greater damage in the future. >> talk about the role of the arab spring here, because obviously, you have a d
